These instructions seemed slightly outdated compared to some of the files I have received from other purchases. It was still easy to follow, but there were a couple mistakes in the writing and sometimes they left out which sides (right/inside of fabric) we should be doing, so it took me a little longer to figure it out on my first try. I think the PDF printing is not separated into the layers like some other files, which made cutting out on a black and white printer a little harder too. If it gets updated at some point, it would be a good time to fix the writing. Otherwise, lovely pattern. I really like how the dresses came out and can definitely see myself making more of them. Thanks CKC!

I have made dozens of this dress in so many color combinations. It never fails to impress!
What a sweet dress to make! Instructions are easy and I love all the frills. It also gives the opportunity to use small/scrap pieces of fabric or all the same color to make a lovely girly dress. Our grand daughters LOVE their dresses
I bought this pattern for the skirt and was not disappointed!
This was my first time making it, My daughter loves ruffles and twirling, She didnt want to take it off! I can see alot more of this pattern being used in the future. Thank you CKC
I have made Blanche a few times, and it never fails to impress. Love this pattern!
This dress is beautiful for any special occasion. It's a lot dress (very full skirt) but I've also used just the bodice and first two tiers of Ruffles for a top.
This was my first CKC pattern. and my first PDF pattern. The instructions are very well written and they make it easy to have an amazing looking outfit, Many new techniques were learned from this.
This dress does take some time but oh is it worth it! My niece Isabella looks stunning in it!
This is the first CKC pattern I ever made and I was hooked from then on out. It was easy enough to figure out and definitely easy for an intermediate sewist. Made this for my daughter to match my sons birthday theme and it turned out great!
I made this dress for my daughter to wear to a friend's wedding. While it was time consuming (so many ruffles!), it was well worth the effort. She got so many compliments. It was so much fun to see her dance in with all those twirly ruffles!
Very easy to sew even with all the Ruffles.
